Building first PC and would like to make sure that these components are compatible with one another and would like recommendations for most cost efffective higher end cpu and graphics card. PC will be used for gaming (D3), as well as for other home use and business purposes.
components I already have:
MO-Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD38-B3 LGA 1155
HDD-Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB
Case-NZXT Phantom 410 Midtower
Power Supply-Corsair Enthusiast TX650
RAM- G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2gb x 4gb)
DVD-Sony Optiarc 24 X DVD burner
OS- Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
hopefully these are compatible with one another and I have yet to buy cpu and graphics card. Any helpful suggestions and comments would be appreciated.
Thanks, I was going to go with the i5 2500k cpu, but was considering the gtx 550ti by MSI. The cost, the fact that it seems to be relatively cool and quiet is what appealed to me. I am building this for D3, so don't really need the best, high-end components. I will give the HD 7850 a look as well. Thanks again.
